Research Interests

Jennifer’s research sits at the intersection of materials science and quantum matter physics. Leveraging the rich properties of transition metal oxide compounds, she is interested in engineering advanced materials synthesis to enable discovery of new physics. Harnessing the power of nanometric epitaxial heterostructures, soft chemistry and novel probes of fundamental phenomena – magnetic, electronic, nuclear and optical – Jennifer’s lab has an opportunity to gain a unique insight into the complex properties of quantum matter.
